-In his platform -he had announce
that he favored keeping accurate min
utes of the session of council an,
recording them in a book kept fo
that purpose. He believed the cler

In his platform he had announce
that he favored keeping accurate a<
counts of all moneys received an
paid out, in books prepared for tha
purpose, and allowing any eitizen c
the town to inspect these books a
any time. He said he believed ever

any time of going for himself an

the town, and what fines had bee
paid and what fines remitted, an

ti-e affairs of ,the town which he d4

gave concrete examples.
He favored, he said, requiring t]
railroads to build a new overheE
steel bridge on Boundary street, aa
if he should be elected and his cou:
cil would back him the present o,
wooden bridge would be condemne
and the railroads required to erect
modern steel structure.
He favored and if elected and wm
baeked by his council he would r
quire a flagman to bf- placed at dai

to negro pool rooms in the city whei
loafing negroes congregated, to pls
pool-negroes who made their livir
by gambling or selling liquor or wi
did nothing except eat from son

ment of the vagrancy law.
He favored improvement in til
serviee of the fire department, ar
advocated rendering such assistan<
as was necessary to give the your
men who were so nobly upholding ti
system as was required to encourag
them in their labors and furnish thel
whatever was essential to make i

I When called on oii Frida.y night he
said he felt a little out of place in
a making a public address. If some
r body should ask him about building
k a house -he would feel more like talk.
e ing, he said.
f When he looked back for the last
- three years and thought of what had
n passed, and saw that he had defeated
d three of the best men in Ward 1 in
succession, and stood tonight with
d out opposition, he had stopped and
- wondered whether itwason account of
d his good looks, his size, or what he
t had done for the .people of Ward. L
f He would leave that for the voters
t to say. He had tried to do his duty.
He had advocated a number of
t things in council, he said, but there
d were five votes to his one. So he
could not have just what he wanted.
[Among the things which he had ad
d vocated for three years was open ses
I sions of council. He wanted to ask
lhe editor of each paper to be pres
ent at every session of council, and
when the vote for city officers was
taken he wanted the council to meet
on the stage of the opera house and
let the roll be called and every mem
. ber of .coucil vote openiv for the
man of 'his choice. He wanted the
id council to face the people and vote
w like men. He realized, he said, that
d when he voted he voted for the peo
ie ple of his ward, .nd he would vote
next year for 116 people, and it was
ie their vote he was entrusted with.
Anobber position which he had tak
d en was that there should be a street
superintendent, and he should be al
d? lowed a street overseer, to be select.
d ed by him and subject .to his orders.
a Newberry was too big for one man to
take charge of all the streets. It was
es a bigger town than it was when Capt.
Jackson could get up in the morning
e and walk all over town before break
- fast. Two overseers had been tried,
L but that did not work, because one
e was always afraid the other would
e do something that council would not
r approve of, and the result was that
little was done. He advocated a
street overseer under the superinten
' dent, the overseer to be put in charge
of the hands, under the superinten
dent, and the superinteendent to be
e in charge of the work generally. With
only one overseer when it was neces
sary to put a negro in charge of- the
o hands the ~hand s often did Nothing
e bu;t smoke cigarettes. The finances
s of the town were short, but he believ
~ed if the right men were put in the
right place, with the proper mater
e ials and -tools, that much could be ac
eHe again referred to open sessions,
'saying that when any measure of im
eporta-ne hdben before the council
ehe had always asked the clerk to re
cord his vote, so that the people
emight know how -he had voted. If
e elected again-it will be recalled that
he has no opposition-he promised to
do the best he could 'for the people
of his ward, as he had tried to do in
